Amour won Best Picture from the LAFC

As awards season starts winding down, we’ll be seeing plenty of more accolades go to The Master and last night the Los Angeles Film Critics’ Circle anointed it as the victor.  While Amour picked up the biggest prize of the night, The Master took home many awards including Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress.  While PTA’s newest film may be too polarizing to garner Best Picture on Oscar night, it certainly will have a big presence.  Another winner was Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which received Best Editing and was also named a runner-up for Best Director.  See the full list below.
